“The Case for Israel”  - In this documentary, Alan Dershowitz, Harvard Law School professor and one of Israel’s most prominent advocates, promotes a discussion defending Israel’s right to exist. To do so he speaks himself, and engages nine other persons, prominent in their various fields. Among them are:

* Allan Sefian and Natan Sharansky discuss the effectiveness against terrorism of Israel’s security barrier.
* Eytan Schwartz discusses the moral dilemmas for Israel in responding to terrorist attacks from Gaza.
* Caroline Glick discusses the broader context of culture and values that are necessary elements for peace.
* Tzipi Livni discusses Iran’s destabilizing impact in the Middle East.
* Benjamin Netanyahu discusses the worldwide impact of Iran’s radical fundamentalist ideology.
